Waukesha Carnival – Super Bowl XLIII edition

by thoughtfulconservative

Let’s get right into this week’s Super carnival. As usual, these are my choices, although you are certainly free to put yours in the comments.

Let’s start with posts about what’s going on nationally. At Practically Speaking, Kyle Prast wonders if Republicans will say no to pork. The governors seem to have capitulated with a couple of exceptions.

Tom Gehl also gives us some plain talk on the “stimulus” package over at Brookfield Basics.

In a related story, the Asian Badger has some thoughts on that CITI bank jet.

Silent e speaks and points out a little hypocrisy at the White House.

Cindy Kilkenny had a proposal on “Drill Here, Drill Now” at Fairly Conservative. The expected result?

Tax revenue and a move towards energy independence from one simple decision.

Sounds simple to me. Cindy also thought that long term contracts such as the one Charlie Sykes recently signed should put an end to talk about the Fairness Doctrine. I disagree, but linked because of the discussion generated.

Dad29 gives us a snapshot of an entitlements catastrophe in the wings. And he kicks off the posts on Wisconsin section by helping Judge Koschnick in adding to the list of Abrahamson “activist” decisions.

Sen. Mary Lazich says the taxpayers deserve answers on Wisconsin Shares. You can read her post at Conservatively Speaking.

Rose Fernandez is getting serious about blogging and posts a few questions and answers. She’s blogging at her campaign web site Change DPI.

Over at Wigderson Library & Pub, James Wigderson looks at the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction race and Dr. Van Mobley’s stands of some issues like increasing the sales tax (to offset a cut in property tax).

The best post on Gov. Doyle’s State of the State speech can be found at Spring City Chronicle, where our good friend Huckleberry Dumbell uses the technology of the “internets” and Google Translator to sort it out.

Randy Melchert, whom I’m adding to the blog roll soon, has a report on a pro-life demonstration in Madison and has video.

Within Waukesha County, Jeff at Five Points Blog informs us of a new direction for the blog and the addition of a co-blogger. Since it is now devoted to eating, drinking and recreation in Waukesha, if you would like to blog there, get in touch with him.

Alexander muses over at A Little Off Main about traffic control at five points during special events. While they’re at it, Alexander would like another “five points” intersection looked at.

Mayor Larry Nelson has published another in his series of Mayor’s Memos. Sure looks busy. Maybe he’s trying to convince us he’s worth all that money we’re paying him.

Linda Richter at Inside New Berlin lets us know about some voter forums taking place for various New Berlin offices.

Bryon Houlgrave has several new pictures posted but I liked this one best because it reminds me there are only 11 days until pitchers and catchers report.

James Rowen at The Political Environment congratulates Waukesha for cutting water consumption, but raises a question on the diversion sought.

Darryl Enriquez posted about a fight at the men’s homeless shelter downtown which started quite a discussion in the comments at Waukesha FYI.

The anonymous blogger at Ocono.com seems to object to Huckleberry’s characterization of their fair community in a recent post.

Scott Feldstein shares his frustrations with video news, especially on the CNN.com site.

That’s the end of this week’s super carnival. As always you can leave a comment suggesting a post for this week or next week’s carnival. Or you can e-mail them to me at thoughtfulconservative [at] yahoo [dot] com.

State of the State preview.

by thoughtfulconservative

Fred at Real Debate Wisconsin gives us the short version.

It will take less time to read, and you’ll be less tempted to throw something.
